Facebook are using the 'Ireland At Lunch' competition, which we helped devise, as a Case Study in presentations to small and medium businesses in Ireland, to show the 'reach' companies can achieve with a simple but well devised & well executed Facebook & Twitter based competition.
You may have noticed recently that your Facebook Profile page has changed quite dramatically, to what Facebook call your 'Timeline'.
That's all well and good but there are strong rumours that they are going to be doing likewise for Business pages on Facebook as well.
We'll be keeping a close on on this potential development and we'll let you know if t is going to happen as it could have quite an impact on how you should run your business page.

[b]Q:[/b] Help, my code to post to Facebook wall via FB.ui() has suddenly stopped working, it now just displays this error - 'An error occurred. Please try again later.', what's happened?, it used to work just fine!

[b]Q:[/b] Is there a way that my website can post to a users Facebook wall without having to register an application?
